Originally commissioned in 1943, The English People was requested by W.J. Turner for the series Britain in Pictures with twenty-five illustrations, eight of which are full colour plates, including work by artists such as Edward Ardizzone and L.S Lowry. Written during World War II, the book encapsulates Orwell's view on what it means to be English.
